[Samba] Samba and 2k/NT4 server -shares readable but not writable

An afterthough since my previous mail: I am logged in
as john who has the uid of 501. Yet I must still
specify the uid=501 when mounting the windows share to
be able to write to it.
As I understand this, since I am the user that is
logged in when mounting the share that should be done
without having to specify it in the mount command.
Am I misreading this? I'm losing it somewhere..
